Ran accross this neat article: http://www.spokesman.com/stories/2018/mar/01/apple-detective-finds-five-more-apple-varieties-th/

An apple expert has been visiting old farms and homesteads in Washington state, and had found 5 varities of apples that were thought to be extint, and 7 more that were rare or lost.

The really cool thing is, they got cuttings and are grafting them onto rootstocks. And, for those within driving distance of Eastern Washington, there's a chance to get some scion wood!

He is organizing two classes in March on the technique of grafting antique stock for propagation. The first will take place 11 a.m. March 17 at Gladish Community Center in Pullman.  The second event will be a class at 11 a.m. March 24 at the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection, 15319 E. 8th Ave, in Spokane Valley.

Participants will receive two antique apple scions. The second class has a registration, which can be made through the Inland Northwest Food Network at inwfoodnetwork.org.
